The Library is honored to have purchased one of the best telescopes on the market. We were able to purchase this beauty with a grant from ION Idaho Out-Of-School Network – Idaho Out-of-School Network (idahooutofschool.org). (Thank-you ION for supporting the students in Donnelly)
The event was funded through ION and money from our Local Option Tax revenue here in Donnelly.
